    My uncle and I dropped 8 trees this morning for an fellow at our church. Two ash killed by ash borer, and 6 silver maple that were dying. Had a great time, got to top a leaner that would have hit power lines. Nothing like being up in a tree and cutting the top off! The maple on the right of the clump was also leaning into another bunch of trees that wasn't coming down and leaning towards the road. That one we had to pull the other way, little nerve wracking but dropped right where we wanted it. All in all had a great morning. Now just need to head over with the tractor and load the rounds to haul out. Used that little redmax limping saw to top the tree. Cool little saw!

    Yes I'll be going back to get the wood tomorrow, left it in log length and will be loading it onto my trailer with the tractor. Don't have any room for it at my place so will be dropping at my folks place until I clear some space out.

    Got a good laugh from this. Always just assume he's taking a leak.
